        I finally got caught up ;-)  Ken's history patch is in, Pico Mode is 
(because it's now the default), and --preserve has been implemented in its 
place.  The search/replace behavior in this release should show what Ive been 
talking about regarding the search/replace behavior.  The CVS-enabled can just 
update, but I figured I'd put this out for the CVS-challenged.  

Here's what's left before we can get to 1.2:
- Spelling.  The leaking fds issue aside, both DB's implementation and my own 
not seem to gracefully handle "sort" not being in the PATH.  I'm starting to 
wonder if this is a problem with my dist (debian) or kernel, because 
exit(system("sort -f </dev/null")) is returning 0 on my box, when sort is not 
the path.   Hmm.

- Spelling.  There's an odd bug where the screen cycles several pages between 
misspelled words. I haven't been able to track it down yet, but it's probably 
relared to color.

- Documentation.  I figure we can start really getting into this after pre1 is 
released.  Anyone who wants to volunteer to do this has my blessing, but I will 
do it if no one wants to.  Some more syntax highlighting examples would be nice 

- Testing.  And lots of it.  I imagine there will be a few billion bugs founds 
in the prereleased, but we can still hammer on the code since then.  This is 
more of a reminder to me, as I've been so bad about testing as of late.

Feedback on pre1test welcome :)
